Schapelle Corby, 43, looks upbeat as she finishes Dancing with the Stars rehearsals alongside professional dance partner Shae Mountain

Schapelle Corby is one of the most hotly anticipated celebrities set to appear on Channel Seven’s Dancing with the Stars: All Stars.

And the convicted drug smuggler, 43, certainly seemed upbeat after a day of rehearsals with her dance partner Shae Mountain on Monday.

Schapelle looked fit and cheerful as she took a stroll through Sydney.

The pair appeared to be getting along well as they walked down a busy street after their practice session. 

Schapelle opted for an all-black outfit comprising tights and a scoop-neck T-shirt, and completed her look with matching sneakers. 

The SAS Australia star kept things Covid safe by having a floral face mask handy, and also carried a tote and a plastic shopping bag.

Shae looked fit in a singlet and shorts, and finished his sporty outfit with sneakers and a cap.

Despite being a little tired from a day of training, Schapelle appeared to be in good spirits during her afternoon stroll with Shae.

Schapelle’s addition to the DWTS lineup has reportedly disappointed the show’s inaugural winner Bec Hewitt, who is returning this year as an all-stars contestant.

A source told New Idea: ‘Bec loves the fact that the show is family friendly and thinks casting someone as controversial as Schapelle goes against everything it stands for.’

Dancing with the Stars will be Schapelle’s second reality TV show, as last year she made a brief appearance on Seven’s SAS Australia.  

She voluntarily withdrew from the military-style program in episode two when the selection course proved too demanding for her.

In October 2004, Schapelle became a household name when she was arrested at Bali airport with 4.2kg of cannabis wrapped in plastic inside her boogie board bag.

The world watched in May 2005 as she broke down in the Denpasar courtroom after being sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment.

Following a series of sentence reductions, Schapelle was released on parole in February 2014, having served nine years behind bars.

She lived in Bali with family until she was deported back to Australia in May 2017.
